Make no mistake about it, the Pasadena High School football program is legit and a real threat to shake up the Pacific League’s hierarchy.

PHS opened Pacific League play on Thursday night and destroyed their visitors from Crescenta Valley.

Kaden Taylor threw his 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th TD passes of the season, and his Bulldogs shut out the Falcons, 46-0.

Taylor finished an efficient 9 of 11 for 170 yards and the four scores.

The PHS star senior also carried the ball seven times for a game-high 90 yards.

CV turned the ball several times, including its first possession of the game.

Jason Sanford turned the first Falcons miscue into a 60-yard pick six to get PHS on the board.

Because of the blowout, no Bulldogs receiver had more than two receptions.

But Jamir Allen, Mekhi Fox, Jasun Ridley, Idrique Carmichael and Sanford all caught TD passes in Thursday’s win.

Hype Grant replaced Taylor and left his imprint on the PHS victory by hitting Janir Allen for a TD.

And speaking of the PHS defense, Mikel Wallace and Tarriq Brumfield picked off the Crescenta Valley quarterback.

Ahmad Jolley had a team-high seven tackles and both Elyo Alsamaan and Ridley had six tackles apiece.

When it was all said and done, the Bulldogs’ D held the CV offense to just 105 yards.

Up next: PHS will travel to Burbank next Friday night.
